Clean and friendly HOA staff

The air conditioning unit in the apartment was not working properly the entire week. We notified maintenance, and it was supposedly repaired however the lowest the unit got was 74 degrees with running constantly.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate you taking time to write a review on our property. We apologize for the issues with the air conditioning system. The entire building was experiencing similar issues because the building cooling system needed a repair. We're glad to report that the repair has now been completed and the HVAC is working as it should again. Thanks for staying with us and we hope you'll come back and stay with us again soon.

Beautiful View but strong cigarette smell!

  • 3 of 5

I would love to give this place a 5 but the smell of cigarette smoke coming through the a/c vents is terribly strong. We are non smokers and every time we entered the unit after being out it smelled like someone had been smoking while we were gone. The view from the unit is beautiful and the furnishings very nice but we won't lease again because of the cigarette smell.

BEST VIEW AT THE BEACH!!

  • 4 of 5

Love the location of this condo ... for a 1 bedroom it is spacious. Kitchen and bath needs updating for it to be a penthouse :) Bed was extremely comfortable and almost everything needed was supplied.

Pineapple Willys next door was a blessing for meals. Didn't have to get in the car and traffic jam.

The Condo complex itself ~ two pools closed last 4 days (said pump issues) and bad storm came in yesterday and the sliding glass door to family room leaks. So water was coming inside the doorway. The elevators where shut down, rain was pouring from the roof inside the elevator and the stairway was a raging river. So if I would of been dressed in nice clothing I would of really been upset that I couldn't get back up to my place with out getting drenched. Soaked and okay I made it back in and was just stuck the remainder of the day.

Great view, and looked exactly like shown on the website.

  • 5 of 5

I'm glad that we chose this unit despite another recommendation from the managemaent company. We enjoyed staying here very much. My mom's a wheelchair dependent and bedritten due to terminal illness. I wanted her to enjoy this trip. She was able to look out from the bedroom or the living room to see the beach. We loved that there's no carpet so it's very easy to move the wheechair around. The kitchen was well equipped. It's very comfortable. It's also very convenient, not even 5 min. drive to Walmart , drug stores and only 6 miles to PCB and a walking distant to Pineapple Willy's restaurant which has a pier. There're also plenty of activities like jet ski, banana boats, dolphin tours.Eventhough the unit was very clean,we did see one small cockroach in the living room, and found one that went home with us in our plastic container. Despite that we would stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Thank you for being a part of making this trip enjoyable for me and my mom.

Fantastic view and location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation in PCB for the month of February.....too bad they couldn't control the weather. We have stayed at the Sunbird before and really enjoy the area, close to all the essentials. But this condo has the best view of the beach and gulf from the 12th floor......windows galore. A comfortable lounge is right in front of the large windows, a great place to relax and enjoy the view.....like beach and dolphins. And the extra bonus is the patio door from the bedroom to the balcony....leaving the door open a bit at night led to the most relaxing sleep on a comfortable king size bed, oh the sounds of the waves.

The condo was clean, bright and airy...well decorated with a beach theme, even the dishes were well matched. Besides the regular kitchen appliances there were lots of pots and pans and small appliances to be used in cooking any meals. However, due to a central location to a number of local restaurants you don't need to cook if you really want a relaxing vacation.

The condo is right on the vast beach of fine, white sand....you can walk for hours in either direction...and we did. The weather wasn't the warmest this year but we still enjoyed the beach and our daily walks. We bought two beach chairs that we only used a couple of times...we left them in the bedroom closet with the hopes that they can be enjoyed by future guests.

We did have one small problem with some unwanted crawlers, which is common in the area, but it only took one phone call to maintenance/property management to get everything straightened away....great service.

We were very pleased to be there for a Snowbird Appreciation Night put on by a few of the owners/renters..they supplied wine, cheese, crackers, meats. A representative of the Canadian Snowbird Association was on hand to bring us up to date on matters that affect vacationers. It was a great meet and greet and was much appreciated by us all.

It was a real pleasure staying in this condo.......hopefully we can return some time in the future.

Perfection in PCB Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Sarah & Hugh's condo at 1205W was perfect & just as described in their ad-Perfection in Paradise!

I am very familiar with PCB and the many locations that condos are spread throughout. I knew I wanted to stay on Thomas Drive because it is less congested but still centrally located to the things that we wanted to do. (WAL MART is just around the corner!) When I found their ad I thought it sounded perfect and it was!

The photos supplied are very accurate but really don't do justice to the actual condo and views. We had stunning spectacular sunsets from the patio. THE MOST AMAZING VIEWS EVER! Not only are you SMACK DAB on the beach but you have views in both directions-INCREDIBLE! We enjoyed breakfast and lunches on the patio every day!

The condo was clean & well maintained. Plenty of linens & starter supplies. The condo was equipped with flat screens in in the Living Room and bedroom, which was nice, I noticed other condos still had outdated TV's. I cooked breakfast, lunch and a couple of dinners, the kitchen was fully equipped and ample cookware and dishes! Loved the ocean themed light blue plates.

Any questions that I had prior to arrival, both Sarah and Hugh were helpful in answering questions! Their info provided prior to check in had all the pertinent info along with suggestions for dining. We actually found a nice little place called Pier 77 off Thomas that I had never eaten at before, it was amazing food.

I have already recommended this condo to friends that will be looking for a place to stay in PCB.

This was my boyfriend's first trip to PCB, FL and thanks to this condo, it will not be his last. He has now fell in love with the emerald waters that were so beautifully visible from 1205W Sunbird! Thank you Sarah & Hugh!!!
